Sample Blacksmith Cover Letter

This blacksmith cover letter focuses on the applicant's experience and ability to create objects from iron or steel by 'forging' the metal, using hand tools to hammer, bend, cut and shape it. To separate himself from others seeking the same job, this man emphasizes his previous experience as the lead blacksmith for a horse breeder in Kentucky. Blacksmith cover letters will help a job seeker land a job if written with professionalism and interest in the work.

Dear Mr. Epstein:

I saw the posting on JobBankUSA.com for employment as a blacksmith in your facility. I am interested in competing for this position. I know that qualified blacksmiths are essential to the horse racing industry where I have worked in the past. I was the lead blacksmith for Kentucky Horse Farm. As long as there are horses, the services of a qualified blacksmith will be needed. That's part of what attracts me to this profession.

I'd be happy to meet with you in person if you'd like to get to know me and to discuss the duties of the person you hire. Please call 333-345-6787 for an appointment that works for your schedule. I'll be there.

I'm grateful for your time in considering this cover letter.
